It's Teen Read Week!

October 14th-20th marks Teen Read Week - a time to celebrate reading as entertainment at Tompkins County Public Library - and this year's theme is "It Came From the Library"!

The kinda creepy theme coincides well with the upcoming Halloween holiday, so try a horror, thriller, or monster book this week! We've got a big display of scary stories to choose from.

If horror isn't quite your cup of tea, YALSA announced the 2012 Teens' Top Ten winners! Did you vote? See if your book made it, or just see what books other teens think everyone should check out.

We've got a couple other fun things going on at TCPL for teens this week, by the way. Stop by any time and make a monster! There's a "Creature Creation Station" parked in the teen area with all sorts of odds and ends for you to glue, staple, and tape together. Show us your weirdest, greatest alien or monster.

And don't forget about our Movie Marathon - the first in our monthly marathon series. To celebrate Teen Read Week we'll be showing Beetlejuice, The Woman in Black, I Am Legend, and Ghostbusters on Saturday the 20th, starting at 10AM. Come for one or stay for them all!

Hope to see you at the library this week!
